    The wait is too long to buy tickets and then to board the cable cars for the top. A tip, carry cash for tickets, they don't accept cards or UPI. But, once you board the cable car the ride is mesmerizing, except for a few bumps in mid-way and the cable car almost stopping mid-way. Finally you reach the top is mesmerised the rock cut structure of Jatayu. Really unbelievable and its a once in a life time visit. From the top of the mountain, you can also gaze of the beaty of nature from the top. Don't throw away the tickets as they are required for the return journey. Switch sides on the to the to and fro journey for a more different view of the landscapes.

    A landmark in Kollam, Thangasseri lighthouse is tall & impressive. Good spot for views, clicks & selfies. Nice views of the city.

    Where would you like to spend an evening with your family, especially if you have kids? Do you think it is comfortable if the leisure spot is within the city? If your answers are yes to both questions, then Kollam Beach is the right place to spend some memorable time in the evening. (Never try to walk to the sea, it will be a memorable day for your family). The Corporation Park is an excellent place where kids and adults can enjoy it for a mere sum of Rs.20. per person. As soon as you are done with the park (trust me, it takes some time), you can walk into the beach and get busy with kite flying or horse riding. You can find plenty of free space to sit and enjoy the sunset even on crowded weekends. A word of warning: you will be safe as long as you avoid walking to the waves.

    Falls in the middle of Kerala forest is well maintained and clean, strict rules are enforced about not throwing plastic and waste about, which is a good initiative. Few pointers
    1. You need to take only the local forest bus up to the falls so you need to buy tickets. During the day, queues can be quite long. So go early or ensure one person from your group stands in line before another buys the tickets
    2. There is a small cafe where the bus drops you off near the falls. Limited items available. You may have a long wait before you are able to actually get what you paid for.
    3. The walk up to the falls and even down to the bathing area is very uneven and slippery at times, so be careful while walking.
    4. The view point at the top is beautiful, although a very steep walk ahead
    5. There is a changing room for the women, which is a huge plus point.
    6. If visiting during day, advised to carry enough water and small snacks while you wait to get on the bus.
    7. Treat people with respect! And don’t be a nuisance!
    Beautiful views, nice memories to create 😀 worth the visit if you’re up to quite a hike.

    Wonderfully well maintained temple. The deities both Mahadeva and ganapathi gives one a divine feeling.. The numerous oil lamps on four sides of The temple walls is always an out of the world experience..

    The crowd however could be more organised as to maintaining separate entry and exit lines.

    Similarly the unniappam neivedyam prasadam seems to have, gone down on quality whereas it has increased triple times as to price... Will authorities take notice?

    This beautiful waterfalls is opened now. Few safety arrangements have been made. Also few amenities viz. parking, change room etc has been made available. Water is aplenty now. Also, the roads from Achenkoil is superb; But from punalur to Achenkoil stretch is very bad.

    The mall itself has many popular restaurants and attractions.

    Jajis salon is on the 4th floor and provide a great service for both men and women.

    There are lifts and escalators to the various floors. The 4th floor has the food court. I’ve tried chickys and the chaat shop. Chickys expect you to collect the order despite seeing my walking stick. The chaat shop were happy to bring the food to you. So was the other Thallershery food shop. So wasn’t impressed. The meat is crispy but no flavour as such. I wouldn’t try again.
